Blast Off to Negative Space



I love this series of drawings because they're all about space - both literally in subject, and in design -- through the use of negative space.

These illustrated intergalactic adventures are both dense and airy. The intense and compact scribbled lines are broken up and interplay with the space left blank.

The drawings, depicting an astronaut killing time in space, are more surreal and witty than appear at first glance. Vacuuming the stars like dust, a paint bucket labeled "cosmos"—I can't help but smile at the playfulness. See more illustrations like these (and not like these--he draws plenty of stuff other than astronauts) in P3T3 B3's sketchbook. Even his name is futuristic, how fitting! See more »

She Will Paint on ANYTHING



The people of Portugal who have the chance to see this street artist's work while they go about their daily business are so lucky. Her name is Vanessa Teodoro, also known as Supervan, and she will paint on anything. Cars, bodies, furniture, gigantic sunglasses–Seriously anything.





My personal favorite is her project titled "Mi Querida Casa," in which she created a real life drawn house environment where the furniture looks like doodles. Once she gets going, Teodoro wastes no space on whichever unusual surface she chooses to draw on. Every inch of her work has something crammed into it, making it hard for me to decide where to look first when a ton of striking images are demanding my attention at once. There's so much movement in her murals that I keep finding some witty little details tucked away in the crowd of her art that I skipped over at first glance. It's the kind of art you can just sit back and stare at while you sip your drink. Continued »

Member Spotlight: Marie Lemaistre



I love it when I click through the members of our community and discover someone's work that really catches my attention.

Like many of us, Marie Lemaistre finds inspiration in films, cartoons, the music in the streets, and in her dreams. Her take on drawing is to keep a spontaneous expression of ideas, emotions and imagination going, while simultaneously trying not to censor or hesitate along the way. It works wonders in her illustrations and is just the right philosophy for any doodler out there.

She's Out of This World



Incoming swarm of otherworldly girls heading our way! They come from another universe where everything is boldly colored, cats can live in their hair, and clothes are abstract. In Natalie Foss' alternate dimension of color pencils and quirky ladies, everything is simple except your face and hands. It gives me the impression that the girl's face is so captivating to me that I don't see the details of anything else around her. Natalie says she usually finds inspiration in people, music, animals, subcultures, feelings, fashion, thoughts and a good cup of coffee. Have fun spotting a little bit of everything on her website.

Sketching in Series



These sketchbooks are sending me on an adventure. I’m like a paleontologist unearthing gorgeous sea fossils… and… occasionally gorgeous girls. Partly a journal of zoological specimens and partly beauty magazine, Tavo Montańez’ meticulous black lines make it all come together so well I didn’t even question it. He inked up four entire sketchbooks full of cool spreads with his out of control doodling, you can scroll through the whole series on his site or see some of our favorites below.

Coloring Book Interview Series, #11: Ana Sebastián

There's a certain cat-loving illustrator from Madrid that I want to introduce you to. She's got a super cool drawing of a fascinatingly strange man published in our Coloring Book Volume 4, just one of a huge variety of odd and unusual characters she has created. Doodlers, meet Ana Sebastián.

Human + Nature



Flowers growing out of skin. A flock of birds fluttering out from someone’s mind. Curious bears crawling over a hoodie. These drawings are connected by the common theme of humans and nature being intimately close, sometimes inseparably intertwined. Tatiana Karpova takes inspiration from real life objects or beings to insert directly onto the paper in ink, pencil or watercolor, but the finished image is something dreamy and impossible. A perfect balance of influence from humans and nature coexisting on paper.
